I hope everyone plans to come for the Meet the Teacher event tomorrow, Monday, from 1-3. The first full day of school will be on Tuesday.
Also, the Parent Handbook is available on the Washington Center website, however, we will provide hard copies upon request. We are working on having it translated into Spanish, so hopefully the additional document will be available soon. Included in the handbook are the directions for the Remind app which we use to let folks know about weather changes or other information that we need to get out quickly.
When you come for Meet the Teacher, or when you get your school packet, I hope you will fill out the Free and Reduced Lunch application. Please remember, that our qualifying for Title One funds does not depend upon how many of our students eat school lunches, but on how many qualify. Therefore, even families of students who are tube fed and homebound need to complete the application because those students are in our enrollment count.
Tomorrow and Tuesday you all will be getting information about our PTA’s first fundraiser, Cherrydale Farms, and about joining PTA. The PTA supports us at Washington Center in many, many ways, for which we are all very grateful. I hope you will all join.
That’s it for this evening. Hopefully many of you will be able to come to school tomorrow.
